"Modlitba pro Martu" (The Prayer for Marta).

The most famous single in Czech Republic released in 1968. This song became the biggest freedom hymn in Czech Republic and the most hated song by the communists who decided two years later to forbid Marta as a singer. Marta came back in 1989 after the Revolution in Czechoslovakia and sang her Prayer from a balcony in front of hundred thousand people gathered at the Vaclavske Namesti in Prague.
